Publisher Comments:

You're not lazy, self-indulgent, or undisciplined. Many people who suffer from sugar sensitivity don't even know it — and they continue to consume large quantities of sweets, breads, pasta, or alcohol. These foods can trigger exhaustion or low self-esteem, yet their biochemical impact makes those who are sugar sensitive crave them even more. This vicious cycle can continue for years, leaving sufferers overweight, fatigued, depressed, and sometimes alcoholic. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Dr. Kathleen DesMaisons came up with the solution and published it in her revolutionary book Potatoes Not Prozac. It gave you the tools needed to overcome sugar dependency, including self-tests and a step-by-step, drug-free program with a customizable diet designed to change your brain chemistry. But now, armed with a decade of further research and patient feedback, Dr. DesMaisons has improved her groundbreaking plan to make it even more effective and easier to follow. Join the thousands who have successfully healed their addiction to sugar, lost weight, and attained maximum health and well-being by using this updated, innovative plan.

Synopsis:

Did this diet years ago and forgot about it, was so glad to come across it again. Bought 2 copies, one for me and one for my Step Dad and we are going to start the diet this week.

Carey, January 7, 2008 (view all comments by Carey)
This is the completely revised version with up-to-date information on brain chemistry & neurotransmitters, based on Dr. Kathleen Desmaisons' work with thousands of alcoholics & addicts in sobriety centers & through her website, Radiant Recovery.

Kathleen Desmaisons has a Ph.D in Addiction Nutrition. She developed the theory that some of us are born with a biochemistry that is more susceptible to addiction. She calls this "sugar sensitivity."

Dr Desmaisons has a knack for explaining complex subjects in an easy-to-visualize way. Her tone is friendly & encouraging.

If you have children, I would also recommend "Little Sugar Addicts" which Kathleen also wrote.
